This is from the end of the year run at Winterland, and features a great Set One that looks and sounds a lot like Europe - Sugaree, Loser, FOTD, Box of Rain, and a smokin China>Rider.

also, the last great Dark Star of 1972. Worth a listen!!

cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)

From the Taping Compendium on Dark Star > Stella Blue:

"...and features one of the finest versions of Dark Star. This Star meanders at first, but soon the sound gets really deep. Garcia, Weir, and Lesh enter improvisational bliss. This Star isn't pleasant in the least; in fact, it's one o f the most sinister performances around. The pre-verse jams reach several different themes with each band member apparently taking turns in the creation. After the lyrics, the theme turns into a vast wasteland. Godchaux provides a haunting keyboard effect throughout while Garcia and Kreutzmann noodle around awaiting the ever-approaching ‘Tiger.’ The effect is quite spaced-out, complete with hair-raising feedback and Lesh bombs galore. Ultimately the band returns from its nebulous state, and the final San Francisco Dark Star of 1972 comes to a conclusion. The Stella that follows is simply beautiful.”

I'm on it

Just what the Doctor (pun intended) ordered.

Been crazy hectic at work, nothing like a good recommendation to put things back in perspective.

This year it's an inch of ice, in '79 it was like 3 feet of snow. No matter, the band was hot enough.
